HP Manifold Virtual and Actual

Hewlett-Packard have unveiled a new digital sculpture and video installation at their Palo Alto headquarters. The 60-foot long permanent installation is a manifold of responsive panels made of reinforced fiberglass that “bridges the divide between the virtual and the actual.” The installation combines sculpture, animation and interactivity. One side is a beautiful expression of architectural form while the reverse features a syncopated video wall. The permanent installation uses a RFP (reinforced fiberglass) shell derived from CNC milling techniques. See it here.

“We were commissioned to create a large-scale sculpture and video installation that ‘transcends technology and creates an experience that embraces the new’ at HP’s Palo Alto headquarters. We designed an ever- emerging reality that rides the cutting edge of experiential design expectations,” said Jessi Seppi, Tronic, partner and designer.

    Wow, that is a crazy looking video wall. I guess I guess if I had a video wall I’d like to actually use the video wall rather than look at it all day. Don’t get me wrong I love how it is art, but for that kind of money you should be able to give a presentation on it or something.
